Event Details

Join us to be inspired and help conquer childhood cancer.

The Parkway Run & Walk, presented by Citadel Credit Union, is an extraordinary example of the mobilization of people determined to conquer childhood cancer. The event began under the Parkway Run name in 2002, fueling 20 years of breakthroughs at CHOP’s Cancer Center.
